Preparations….

THANK YOU!

Did I cause all this?

Firstly, may I say a BIG round THANK YOU to all who sent in their good wishes and to anyone who is sharing our joy over Bonny’s pregnancy. While I am liking the general mood of excitement, I can’t understand what any of this has to do with me….why Wobbly Gran even said it was all my fault!!?!?!?! And then she patted me on the head and smiled the same silly smile as she is wearing….

Bonny (sleeping in a place we definately wouldn't want her to birth in)

The babies are due on 11th July (or thereabouts) and we have been advised by the vet to get a birth-place ready (so Bonny does not do it in MY bed…yuck) and so it does not feel strange to Bonny at that precious time.

So she has been sorting out boxes donated by Jules and Diane (thank you!) and has carved a contraption from cardboard. Bonny has already chosen the store room at the end of our kitchen (which is usually a tip lol) as Bonny goes in there at night and sleeps (since being pregnant, that is). So we have put her new box there and are ‘trying it out for size’.

The box (VERY strong cardboard)

We are not sure if this space will be big enough for Bonny's easy access.

This box is our first try. Bonny might not like it and we wonder if it really is big enough. Can anyone suggest anything better?

This is the box in situ (pantry - our maternity ward)

Door to the pantry which extends under the stairs.

    Hmmmm…I don’t really haves any suggestions but I do thinks it looks nice and cozy! I guess it’ll just be up to Bonny to decide.

    Hector,
    Congrats dad to be!
    The box looks good to me..but what do I know? 🙂
    Mom says she has no idea so she can’t offer you any helps on this either except maybe ask her V-E-T for advice. 🙂

    Woofs and Licks,

    Looks okay. The only time we were involved with puppies, we just put boards up around a corner to make a box. That worked well.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Congrats to Bonny and we wish her a very successful pregnancy and delivery…is this her first litter. Ummm we can’t help much with a whelping pin info however we have seen several families set up a type of fence (several baby gates) around an area with the box inside. This keeps the other pets away from mom and babes. As for the size how about two boxes taped together.
    We look forward to following Bonny’s progress.
    Madi and Mom
